Any Path Gets You There

What’s the best diet? The one you’ll follow. What’s the best exercise program? The one that gets you the results that YOU want. What’s the best business strategy? The one you’ll actually implement to get where you want to go. I was wishing a happy birthday to Scott Sigler, and realized that he’s a great […] The post Any Path Gets You There appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Go On a Media Diet

Too many of us are chewing up hours each day in an effort to “stay informed” and “keep up” but also to waste time in between other tasks. It’s time to go on a diet. A media diet. How to Start Your Media Diet Look at the blogs and newsletters you currently receive. You already […] The post Go On a Media Diet appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Working on my New Book

I’m writing a new book called Make Your Own Game. This book solves the challenge of “how do I get more successful at life and business?” I thought I’d share a little behind-the-scenes of how I do it. I Start With “Why Bother With a Book?” It took a while to write this new book, […] The post Working on my New Book appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Is Your Site About You Or Them?

Imagine you need to swap out the dishwasher in your kitchen (the device, not a person). If you didn’t want to do the job yourself, you’d call a plumber, or go look for one online. Now, imagine the plumber spends her or his time telling you about their credentials, about why they charge what they […] The post Is Your Site About You Or Them? appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Sing the Hell Out of Your Song

I’ve come to realize that one big challenge we have is that we have to tell the world how we help them, and we have to do it often. Only, we have to do it in a way that makes it about our buyers and not us. If you’re like me, you quite often have […] The post Sing the Hell Out of Your Song appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Brand Manage Camp is Worth It

I wouldn’t ever write a post like this if I were asked. I hate when people ask me outright to say nice things about them or their company or their event. No one asked me to write any of this. I need to tell you that so I can say what I want to say […] The post Brand Manage Camp is Worth It appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Your Message and Your Voice

I’m writing this for my Owner Insiders but figured I’d share it with you, as well. The idea is one of those simple-but-potentially-profound ones. I’ll be sharing it with the people at Owner Action Systems LIVE in Portland, Maine on 9.24.16. Show More Summary

Advertising Hits a Hurdle

This guy is known as Pewdiepie. You can decide he’s a weirdo (he is). You can think his videos aren’t interesting because they’re mostly “let’s play” coverage of video games (currently one of the top watched video categories of YouTube). Show More Summary

Labor Day

I’ve never been one to celebrate Labor Day. It’s a US holiday built to say, “Hey good job, workers. You did work!” Seems a bit patronizing to me. I prefer to celebrate work every day. But you can make a holiday what you want, and so I made mine my own. Labor Day Over the […] The post Labor Day appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

How to Write Better

I wrote a book on how to Find Your Writing Voice. The idea came because Jacq said she wanted to know how to translate her unique self onto the page, onto her blog, into emails and more. You know, in a world where writing and communication are more important than ever, I wanted to make […] The post How to Write Better appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

What Do You Lose by Fitting In?

I just looked over my last ten posts. The only thing they all have in common is that I’m not talking about what all my other friends are talking about. I’m not talking about lead magnets and how to automate your tweets or why it’s sad that Blab failed or any of that. I’m not […] The post What Do You Lose by Fitting In? appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Content Marketing: We Must Entertain

I’m working on a new post, but I want to make you watch this video ahead of it. I won’t explain why yet. Just go with me. Continue Reading The post Content Marketing: We Must Entertain appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Wait Where Did Yesterday Go

It’s practically September, you know. The year is almost over. How much did you accomplish? Can you measure it in any way? Do you have any markers? I’ll tell you straight out that I didn’t do nearly enough to cover myself in this regard. I didn’t track it well enough. Wait: Where Did Yesterday Go? […] The post Wait Where Did Yesterday Go appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Pokemon Go Stats

The guys at BargainFox sent over this insane infographic full of Pokemon Go information. There are some fascinating numbers in there. Continue Reading The post Pokemon Go Stats appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

The Right Kind of Advertising

Matthew McConaughey is smart, and so are the people at Wild Turkey, a Kentucky maker of bourbon. They approached the actor to be the celebrity spokesman for their product. You’ve seen it a million times before. But Matthew wanted more. He said that he wanted to dig in and get his hands in the clay […] The post The Right Kind of Advertising appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

The Motivation Habit

I just got back from a half hour of rucking (which is hiking around with a backpack full of weight – in my case, 55 lbs). I’ve been doing this almost daily for three weeks straight, heading into my fourth. The training I’m working on has eight weeks of this in the menu before I […] The post The Motivation Habit appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Pokemon Go is a Phenomenon – Get Into It

I never write about the bleeding edge of things. It doesn’t benefit most people to run out and try something very new most times. But I really think you should give Pokemon Go a try and I’ll explain why. What is Pokemon Go? If you’ve ever heard of the video game / card game / […] The post Pokemon Go is a Phenomenon – Get Into It appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Five Good Dishes – Make Your Business Smarter

Our friend James showed us the wonderful independent bookstore, McNally Jackson while we were in New York recently. We left with a stack of books (which I never do, because I’m a digital downloads kind of guy) and probably could’ve stayed...Show More Summary

We Are All Foreigners

The recent vote for Britain to depart the European Union came with a tall side order of hate, racism, and fear. Your first reaction will probably mirror mine: deplorable. And it is. But there’s more to it. Hate Comes From Fear This kind of hate, anyway, is the stuff of fear. The people most affected […] The post We Are All Foreigners appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

I Have a Secret Weapon

I have a secret weapon when it comes to building my business, and it’s something I definitely can’t train you to have. I love to share thoughts and ideas with people. I love creating posts. Text, video, audio. It’s all great for me. I love sharing. My Secret Weapon The beauty of such a secret […] The post I Have a Secret Weapon appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.
